Freshly painted. More weathering to be added. Will focus on finishing up a few props, including a vibro axe, a vibro sword, and a carbine while I print out new shoulder bells. As always, any constructive criticism is appreciated. This is the way.

New leg armor painted and weathered to match the rest of the suit. Waiting on some materials and for my new shoulders to be printed. Mi kit is taking shape slowly but surely. This is the Way.

Hello! Update. The shin area ans the knee area have to be distinct per CRLs. Trauma plating may be used. I modded my original shnees to have a more distinct knee armor to comply with the CRLs. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I would suggest making the knee portion stick out higher from the shin area.

I'm not a judge, so wait for them to chime in.

I finally completed my kit!!!

After many weeks of work and research, I completed the upgrades I wanted for my Legacy kit. I changed the FS from a 1 piece to a 2 piece for comfort and ease of wear, exchanged my shoulder bells, and changed my shnees to a shin-knee setup. Here are the details of the new pieces. As soon as I kit up, I'll post my last WIP update. Thank you for your help and interest! This is the way  ;D

That weathering is looking fantastic. Well done. Now put it all one so we can see it together. Random side thought - did you weather that hooded cloak that you have as well?

Do you have any upgrades planned now? lol

Thanks! I'll fully kit up this weekend, so as soon as I have some pics, I'll post them here. I added some more weathering to my poncho (pic below). I do have some upgrades planned for the future (especially because I want to be a desert specialist brigade member once I'm OM) but for now I think my suit is basically complete.

Awesome!! Personally, I would weather your poncho even more honestly. The soft part weathering you did on your flight suit and flak vest looks great but I think the poncho would look under weathered if you were wearing all of it together currently.

I would say hang it up and weather the bottom trim at least with some rust brown paint and fray it up a bit more as well - the edges are just too clean of lines to have been naturally frayed that way, IMO

I know some of this feels "nit picky" (trust me, i've been there lol) but this will just make your already great kit and better!

It's perfectly fine, I appreciate the criticism. I will weather it a bit more before I take pics of my kit this weekend. Maybe even add some black (lightly) where sweat would collect. Thank you so much for encouraging me to do better! I'll post the pics as soon as I have them.

Additional weathering on my poncho. Also, completed a new vibro-knife and SOOGA! Looking forward to wearing my full kit on Sunday. This is the way  :jango:

Done with my costume! It's been really hectic but I managed to complete it. I won't submit with my poncho, just wore it for fun. Thanks for all of the advice and feedback I've received  :jango:

Last WIP update.

My kit was approved! Thank you to all who helped me on my journey to OM. I'm proud to call every one of you my brothers and sisters in Mandalore.
Painted the Mythosaur skull on my left shoulder and my Clan logo on my right shoulder.

Looking forward to many troops! Oya!
